Habitat Blogger Dinner + Christmas Gift Guide

Nothing beats filling your boots on festive spirit in London’s West End – the show-stopping windows, million dollar Christmas lights and the fact it’s never quite as cold as the rest of the city in winter because of the sheer density of shops and people looking for a good time! For me – Tottenham Court Road has always been my […] Read more…

Glad Tidings: Homeware with Feelings

Somehow the festive season and a marked ending of a year brings out sentiment and poetry in all of us. During this time, I’m partial to accessories adorned with whimsical words and phrases that enhance the excitement of the season, warm the cockles and spread good cheer. Christmas entertaining to me is about building the […] Read more…

Halloween at Sainsbury’s

I never miss a chance to attend a Sainsbury’s Home preview. Every season their collections are just spot on – on trend but classic, covetable and excitingly affordable. This season you can find elegant linocut floral accessories and embroidered cushions amongst other beauties – take a look at their homeware here. Best of all Sainsbury’s do Halloween really well. Lets […] Read more…

The New Industrial, High Street Hits

I rarely wish that my interior style was other than it is (warm, modern and a little bit luxurious) but recently i’ve been wishing my taste was more industrial. I love the materials and textures used in this trend and how hairpin black metal legs, pale worn wood, eroded steel coupled with hunks of veined marble and delicate orbs of […] Read more…

This Season’s 10 Must Have Homewares

Each changing season in her home my grandmother would take stock of her furnishings – a wall dulled in colour, chipped crockery or any frayed edges and add it to her list. She would pick out new fabrics for curtains, change dark winter slip-covers on her seats for bright cream linens and refresh that wall with […] Read more…

Feeling Good in London: The Royal Festival Hall Shop

In between working on my fledgling brand, freelance work, running a household (yes a modern woman can be proud to do that too) and raising a precocious two year old i’ve had little or no time for this blog. Gaps of life in-between have been sandwiched with early morning jaunts around London with Aarya to clear […] Read more…

Not on The High Street takes over Spitalfields

From the moment Not on The High Street opened their virtual doors in 2006 they have done a pretty great job of transforming the online gifting market from the dubiously personalised and bland offerings we had to endure to an inspiring and engaging place to shop for gifts. I certainly know I get excited when […] Read more…

Kate Spade Tableware at John Lewis

I’ve been a fan of preppy, whimsical and girly American brand Kate Spade for years now. Known for witty wordings, polka dot patterns and gilded details. Launching on the 15th of March is it’s first super-sweet tableware collection in the UK with John Lewis. I guess what has always attracted me to the brand is […] Read more…

Exit Through The Giftshop : National Maritime Museum

Like most people I love a Museum Shop. A good one is always creatively stocked with well- themed homeware, toys, ‘essentials’ like bottle openers and mugs, artsy prints and a good library for further reading. The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, which I visited this weekend has one of the best museum shops I have […] Read more…
